She was born on August 2, 1924, the daughter of Roy and Winifred Noggles.

Dorothy grew up on farms in Green County, Wisconsin, and graduated from Evansville High School.

She married Robert (Bob) Sarow on June 1, 1944. Bob predeceased Dorothy on February 13, 1993.

As part of the WW II Greatest Generation, she worked as a "Rosie the Riveter", a crane operator, moving submarine diesel engines down the Fairbanks Morse Beloit assembly line. Dorothy was also employed at Willis Drug and Evansville Manor.

Dorothy spent her adult life in Evansville living in the same house for 61 years. She was a talented cook and seamstress. Late in life, she enjoyed quilting and participated in the knitting club at Creekside Place. A formidable bowler, she took part in several ladies' teams at state tournaments.
